Building upon the success of the first generation, comes the
13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Crankbait Casting Rods displaying an updated design and significant upgrades of performance features that help anglers fish their reaction baits more effectively. The release of the original Omen series was a turning point in the market for affordable bass fishing rods; it increased angler's expectations tremendously serving as the new standard for $100 rods. The follow-up effort seeks to do much the same. The specialized Omen Black 2 Crankbait models veer in a slightly different direction from the standard casting models - instead of a 30 ton Japanese Toray blank, the crankbait specific rods opt for a composite blend. The mix uses a special formulation of 24 ton Toray graphite and Japanese T-glass to deliver the essential parabolic bend that treble hook lures demand.
While fiberglass rods still have their niche, more and more anglers are gravitating toward blended composite blanks like those used by 13 Fishing in their Omen Black 2 Crankbait rods. In doing so, users are still finding the forgiving, slow bend afforded by glass, but with the lightweight and sensitivity that makes graphite so popular. Like the standard casting models, the Omen Black 2 Crankbait rods incorporate 3A Portuguese full cork handles, Alps guides with Zirconia inserts, Evolve Engage reel seats and rounded out with the snagless hook keeper.
The 13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Crankbait series includes two casting rods: a 7' all-around model and a longer 7'9" launcher style rod for really winging those deep crankbaits. Many anglers also like using "Crankbait" rods for other reaction bait techniques such as topwater, ripbaits and now vibrating jigs - the two models in this series are quite suitable for those applications as well. The significant changes in the new Omen Black 2 Series increase the performance tremendously and yet the rods retain their most attractive feature: their affordability. Both models are under $120.
